  • From the director of LIFE IN A SPIRAL presented at TorinoFilmLab Meeting Event


Old men who brutally and relentlessly cling on to their roles as heads of state have become colossally negative images in many countries of Africa, including Senegal. When President Abdoulaye Wade wanted to run for office yet again in 2011, a resistance movement formed on the streets. A documentary about a country in the grip of change, in which two thirds of the population are under 25 and long for new beginnings.
